Top 15 Power Rankings: After Watkins Glen

Well, I think Bowyer is too high, and Kenseth too low, but other than that I think you did very good, I didn't see Ragan or Truex up there, but after reading your info., I believe they should be up there now, good job, and I understand you have been having computer problems, but I think this just might have been short term memory loss.

6.    (89) (Last Week: 11th)
Kevin Harvick 3 of the last 4 races were top 6 finishes

10.   (85) (Last Week: 9th)
Kevin Harvick This weeks 6th moved Kevin up another spot to 11th.

11.   (84)  (Last Week: 6th)
Matt Kenseth He hasn't been racing as good in these last few races, but this weeks 10th has him 12th in the standings.


13..  (83)  (Last Week: 6th)
Matt Kenseth 12th place finish 12th in the standings

Now, you see the problem, lets point out the differences, for Harvick, difference of 89 to 85, and on one says last week 11th, and the other last week 9th, now, I don't know where your mind was here, but the 10th place one is underrated if it is that one because he got a 6th place just to move down 1 spot in the power rankings, plus you had Tony higher up as last week 11th, so I guess you went with the bottom one.

Now, Matt Kenseth isn't as bad, difference of 84 and 83, not really a difference, but you say on one he finished 10th, and the other 12th... so, I'm sure this was just due to your computer, but don't do it again please, it confuses me
